Drug felonies in Kansas are controlled by the Kansas Sentencing Guidelines. Drug felonies are classified at various levels between 1 and 4, with a level 1 being the most severe and a level 4 the least severe.
"Meth labs" have been a hot issue in Kansas for the past decade. If charged with manufacturing meth you will be facing a sentence of 11 to 15 years. For possession of an illegal drug with the intent to sell you will be facing 1 to 4 years. In addition, the government often tries to seize peoples' homes, cars, and money. The government often abuses its authority by trying to turn simple possession cases into possession with intent to sell just because of the quantity of an illegal substance.
I have successfully tried numerous drug cases. I understand the need to look at facts underlying the arrest and any searches, whether they were done with or without a warrant. I understand the need to attack the credentials of an officer the government wants to use as a "meth lab" expert. I understand the need to attack the procedures used when the government uses informants to make controlled buys. And I understand the prejudice that a person will face by many jurors just because they are accused of being involved with drugs.
